Flying from Sofia

Sofia Airport, Bulgaria’s main international air departure point is rapidly expanding to become one of the busiest in Europe. Almost five million passengers pass through it annually, and as Bulgaria grows in importance as a financial and tourist destination, that number is set to keep rising annually. 

Located about 10 kilometres from the centre of Sofia, the airport provides a hassle-free experience for international travellers as well as passengers flying from Sofia with Qatar Airways. 

Transportation and parking

Drivers coming in from the centre of the city can use the Orlov Most bridge as their starting point, and then head east and follow the signs first to Hristofor Columb Boulevard, which in turn leads onto the airport. 

A car park that can accommodate up to 400 vehicles is located in front of Terminal 1, while a multi-storey car park provides a further 800 spaces. Both car parks offer short and long-term parking, and are open 24/7.

Public transport also provides links to the airport, with an extended Metro Line 1 service connecting to Terminal 2 at the airport.  while buses run regularly and journey time is approximately 30 minutes, depending on traffic conditions. 

Some of the larger hotels provide a shuttle service, and there are fleets of taxis available (although it is advisable to book a taxi in advance, especially if you are travelling to the airport early in the morning). 

At the airport

Passengers flying from Sofia with Qatar Airways depart from Terminal 2, which houses 38 check-in desks, seven air bridges and a well-organised customs and security check area that makes the check-in process a stress-free one. However, bear in mind that like all airports, security checks are very thorough, so allow around two hours before your flight is due to board to go through processing. 

A number of lounges are available for passengers in Terminal 2, including a Business and First Class private lounge that can accommodate up to 120 people.

Facilities and amenities

Facilities at the airport are excellent, particularly in Terminal 2. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the airport, and the VIP lounge also offers a range of business facilities including faxing and photocopying services. 

There are also two additional business lounges in the terminal, with further business facilities. Banks, Bureau de Change and ATMs are dotted throughout the airport, and the food hall offers a wide choice of snacks, fast food and more substantial meals, as well as beverages. 

Duty Free shops provide the usual luxuries, while other retail outlets sell everything from travel essentials to souvenirs. Terminal 2 provides seamless accessibility as it was specifically designed with disabled passengers in mind.
